As spring begins, stems and leaves quickly start to reproduce.
Water sporadically, with 2-3 glasses of water , leaving the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when watering we suggest avoiding excesses, but to wet the substratum well. Let's act every 1-2 weeks . Perennial plants are subject to some months of vegetational rest. During these months it isn't necessary to water them.
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.
We suggest a substratum characterized by an excellent drainage.
